Interesting pictures.  Thanks for sharing them with us, George.

I suspect that the placement of the canisters on the truck/trailer was
because of weight considerations, not criticality issues.  I am not sure
that UF6 could ever achieve a critical geometry, even if it is enriched
to a fairly high level.

Notice how the fissile material is transported, the two canisters are
far apart, compared to less enriched material, which is stacked close
together on the truck.

I took all these pictures.Since this trip my mobile lab also includes
neutron detection.

That's where Cameco processes the yellowcake into purified UO3 at Blind 
River and converted to UF6 at Port Hope.
